European Turkey. Josifov (1986a), Andersen (1995), Önder et al. (2006, as G. costae   ), Aukema (2009); this paper. First exact records from Turkish Thrace.

Asian Turkey. Horváth (1883, as G. costae   ), Oshanin (1908, as Gerris (Gerris) costae   ), Oshanin (1912, as G. costae   ), Kiritshenko (1918, as G. lateralis   , misidentifications), Poisson (1925, as G.costae   ), Gadeau de Kerville (1939, as G. Costae   ), Hoberlandt (1952a, as G. costae   ; revised!), Andersen (1995), Kıyak et al. (2004, 2008, all as G. costae   ), Damgaard (2006, as G. costae   ), Önder et al. (2006, as G. costae costae   ), Salur & Mesci (2009, as G. costae   ).

Turkey (not distinguished). Stichel (1955, as G. costai fieberi   ), Kanyukova (1982, as G. costae costae   ), Nieser & Moubayed (1985), Kıyak & Özsaraç (2001), Kanyukova (2006).

General distribution. Gerris costae fieberi   is distributed in Italy, Balkan Peninsula, Ukraine, Central and South European Territory of Russia, European part of the Kazakhstan, Egypt, Anatolia, Transcaucasia, Israel, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan ( Andersen 1995, Protić 1998, Saleh Ahmed & Gadalla 2005). Gerris   c. costae (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1850)   is limited to the Alps and G. c. poissoni Wagner & Zimmermann, 1955 to western Europe ( Andersen 1995). Gheit (1995) reported G. costae   from Morocco without indication of the subspecies. Klingenberg (1992) confirmed the validity of the subspecies by multivariate morphometric study. However, Damgaard (2006), based on molecular data, downgraded Gerris sahlbergi Distant, 1879   (Central Asia, Siberia, Mongolia, China, northern India) to a subspecies of G. costae   , and further questioned the validity of the included subspecies based on the lack of geographical substructure in the mitochondrial DNA examined.

Identification. For identification of the species see Kanyukova (1982, 2006), Andersen (1994), Linnavuori (1998), Linnavuori & Hosseini (2000). Diagnoses of the subspecies are given by Wagner & Zimmermann (1955).
